Description Information
   Small poster, 346:247 mm., light age staining, creased on folds.
   A polemic to the Haredi Jew urging him not to vote in the Israeli elections. This poster, which is signed by Mateh Bnai Torah in the Holy Land, states that the Haredi Jew should not listen to those who tell him that by not voting he is in fact casting a ballot for the secular parties. It reinforces this opinion by stating that great Rabbis such as the Hazon Ish, the Admor of Belz, the Admor of Gur never voted, not even for List Gimel (presumably the religious party).

To vote is viewed upon by the authors of this polemic as if one were entering a house of ill repute, or participating with heretics, or with profaners of the Sabbath, etc. It concludes by saying "Know, Haredi Jew, to stand by his soul do not participate in the elections that were forbidden by the angels of G-d"
